Ron Freeborn has painted all his life.
After studying Fine Art for 4 years in the fifties, he served for two years in the Forces (Cyprus). He was Head of Art in Didcot, Oxon. for the last 40 years, and he has planted firm roots at the edge of the Berkshire Downs over this time.
His paintings are in private collections in all 5 continents, and in the Government Art Collection.
He specialises in teaching senior students (from 6th Form, A-level upwards), experienced painters, & graphic designers. For one year he was seconded to M.O.M.A., Oxford as Education Officer.
His painting subjects cover a broad range and he has
various styles: Venice, landscape, figure compositions, portraits, abstract,
still-life, Theatre, Opera.
It is not surprising therefore that my own work is diverse in realisation and subject matter, which also reflects my various interests and lifestyle. I continue to rejoice in making marks in line and colour and creating a pictorial structure from virtually any source that appeals. The content of the subject determines the approach."
Ron Freebornís work is influenced by travels abroad, and his considerable involvement in performing arts. Ron is a trustee of the Blewbury Players, he has directed all 6 of the Blewbury Operas, and is Chairman of the Oxford Concerto Orchestra. This has led to a tremendous variety of experience, and styles, which indicate an artist enjoying the fullness of his talent.
He has many successful one man shows over the years and continues to exhibit mainly in South Oxon.
His annual course for experienced artists to Venice is always over-subscribed.
